HTC One launch delay confirmed, camera and unibody to blame - read the full textHTC was on the rise until 2012 when the company’s fortunes took a turn for the worse. The company is trying to recapture lost ground with products like the HTC One – a risky, but unique Android phone – but it hasn’t been smooth sailing.

I Hope when they do get the aluminum and camera issue sorted out, the quality and finishing on them are not worsen.

Hurrying to make such a deadline, can result in quality losses

Provide 13MP camera, with xenon flash, with HDR facilities, instead of ultra-pixel. Finish the production as fast as it possible & start selling it.

This is where Apple beats the Android OEMs. When Apple announce a new iPhone, it is usually on the shelves the following week. Android OEMs announces phones and the customers have to way one or two more months to get it. That's poor marketing, and trust me, I'm no fan of Apple, all of my phones are Andriod(SGS3).

A real shame this. While many will argue the S4 has better features/hardware etc I think the One is a very nice looking phone and would sell well for HTC; This is an important launch for them or they risk becoming a back-bench manufacturer. I guess they just don't have the buying and marketing power (money) of Samsung.

HAHAHA, so, where are all the HTC One supporters now?

Go Samsung Galaxy S and Note Series.

"it's all Premium, and not some cheap plastic!"

Yeah? Where is it? Oh, delayed? That doesn't sound premium or a mobile company that will likely usurp Samsung Mobile!

Better luck next time! Or, maybe Samsung will just buyout HTC! haha
